Consumer contract changes 'could save customers money'

I find the contracts we are forced to agree to with various suppliers extremely annoying. With me it's the length of the contract, especially when the price can increase any time during that contract. With BT for instance, why two years, why not six or 12 months?

Perhaps new rules coming in are at least a start to getting us as customers better deals?

"Broadband, TV and phone customers will be given the chance to avoid hefty price hikes when their contracts end under rules taking effect on Saturday.

UK watchdog Ofcom says users could save 150 a year on broadband alone once they are informed of alternative deals.

Around 20 million customers are out of contract with their suppliers, leaving many paying more than they need to."

What annoys me is the line in the contract that allows Sky (in my case) to put up prices by more than the rate of inflation every year.
